Like all ASYCUDA software, ASYCUDAWorld is
installed at the request of governments as part
of technical assistance agreements and adapted
to suit the national characteristics of individual
customs regimes, national tariffs and legislation.

  • Identifies the areas needing reform, such as simplification of clearance procedures, alignment of forms to international standards and modernization of the national customs law.

  • ASYCUDAWorld is configured to incorporate national specificities, that is, the coding of tariffs and related regulations and legislation, data entry of the control tables and preparation of valuation systems. A large training and capacity-building programme is associated with this phase for the transfer of skills and know-how.

  • Various national sites are equipped with the human, technical and logistical skills to autonomously implement and manage the ASYCUDA project.
